“Georgia peach?” For many years a variety of peach grown in Georgia was the country’s favorite peach.
The state that grows the most peaches today is California.
Choose peaches with firm, fuzzy skins that give a little to gentle pressure when ripe.
Store unripe peaches in a closed paper bag. When ripe, store at room temperature for use within one to two days or store in the refrigerator if you are not going to eat them right away. They should keep for three to five days.
